The Simon Graduate School of Business, University of Rochester, has established a Partnership Agreement with Dickinson College for current Dickinson College students interested in studying in a full-time M.B.A. program immediately following graduation.
Students who apply for the M.B.A program directly from Dickinson will receive a fee waived admission application, a minimum of $10,000 per year in merit-based scholarship support if admitted, and the possibility of additional merit scholarship support (exact amount determined by the overall quality of the application). Applicants who apply by the 2nd application deadline (Jan. 8th) with GMAT scores above 700, grade point averages above 3.5 (subject to change yearly as averages change), and strong letters of recommendation, can expect an invitation to the Simon School's annual merit scholarship interview weekend, and the possibility of awards in the upper end of the merit scholarship range. Although GMAT results are not required for admission, official GMAT scores are necessary for merit scholarship consideration beyond $10,000, and potentially up to $30,000 per year will be awarded by the Simon School, based on the overall quality of the application.
Spring semester of junior year: Arrange for a summer internship. Consider attending the Simon Summer Business Institute prior to starting your internship. It's held in the month of June for 3 weeks, more details are available at www.simon.rochester.edu/other.
Summer after junior year: Complete a summer internship and take the Graduate Management Admission Test http://www.mba.com/mba/. Have your score sent to the Simon School.
There are five application date options for entrance in September immediately following May graduation:
By November 1 of senior year (for a January 15 decision)
By December 1 of senior year (for a February 15 decision)
By January 8 of senior year (for a March 30 decision)
By April 1 of senior year (for a May 15 decision)
By June 1 just after graduation (for a July 15 decision)
The following documents must be submitted to the Simon School: -Completed online application
-Unofficial transcript, followed by an official transcript that reflects fall and spring grades
-Letters of recommendation (two)
*Please note that these documents must first be reviewed by Career Center staff before you submit them.
Should you select the Nov 1 or Dec 1 application deadlines, the Simon School will do a preliminary evaluation of your file, pending receipt of your official transcript after fall grades are posted. After you have submitted your application materials, your file has been reviewed, and you have been interviewed, a formal admissions decision will be made by the Admissions Committee to admit or deny your admission to the M.B.A. program.
